The Indian ocean is very deep, it is a remote location and two weeks have passed already. This black box will be harder to find than that of the Air France flight which got lost over the Atlantic. Back then they said that the sender of the black box will run for a month. I don't believe that they will find it this time.

Under the circumstances, en interrogation in England is the best solution for every parties. If, following the interrogation, formal charges are layed and is is accused of rape, his situation will change anyway and probably won't have the choice to face the charges there, regardless where he is.

I think for some parties it is best when he stays locked into that embassy. So they are not gonna change anything and Assange must stay there until he is willing to risk to go to Sweden.

From what I know these changes are to protect against credit card numbers s stolen from online trading, and to stop skimming. It is no longer enough to copy a magnetic stripe and steal a pin to get the money if no country in the world accepts magnetic stripes any more. USA is one of the last who does, a large part of the withdrawals in skimming attacks is done there now.

The article acts as if they are wasting $350 million by completing it. But it does not say how much has been spent already. Maybe there is not that much money to save by cancelling it?
And I can't believe that the NASA will not use it in the future, the article also gives no real reason for that.

Quark! Quark! Beware the quantum duck!
